    Is that a 335xi in the driveway? Please compare the two cars when you can.

    Unfortunately, that is not mine, it's the previous owner's new car.

    335xi sedan. Supposedly it's just as fast as the WRX, but I'm pretty sure the handling isn't up to par... yet.

    the new 335's have a twin-turbo m3 engine in them. STi and a 335 would be a good race.
    Stage II and loving it!

    Yea, I should've elaborated... my WRX and the 335 are similar in output. The WRX is not in this league, but yes, the STI and 335xi would be a good match up.

    Ahhh, I see. My wife wants to buy a 335xi, so maybe I'll race her and let everyone know how it went.
